The Lakes South Morang College - Issue 2 2023



On Monday 6th February, the Year 6 students went on an excursion to Earth Ed, in Ballarat. This excursion linked in with our Inquiry unit, Change Detectives. Change Detectives is about the 3 states of matter - solids, liquids and gases. We learnt about physical and chemical changes and got to do lots of different experiments. We learnt about solids, liquids and gases and how they change in different ways. We learnt about the way solids, liquids and gases change under different situations, for example, heating and cooling. We learnt about reversible changes, including melting, freezing, evaporating, and irreversible, including burning. We got to do hands - on experiments and had to investigate which teacher was the thief of the group, which ended up being Michelle B!


On Wednesday the 8th of February the Year 7’ s and the Year 9’ s went to camp. We went to Phillip Island for camp. When we arrived there was a beach 700m away from the campsite. We arrived around 11:30 and when we got there we had lunch and unpacked all our bags from the bus. We then went in the pool from 2:00 – 4:00. After we had enjoyed our 2 hours in the pool we got ready for our first activity. The activities were circatron, flying fox, giant swing, archery and rock climbing. Then we had afternoon tea and free time to explore the campsite. After free time it was time for dinner, we had chicken schnitzels which weren ’ t the best! As we finished dinner we had free time for a little bit before our trivia night. Each table had a group name and the questions consisted of music, movies, and general knowledge. We then had a little bit of free time before we got ready for bed and lights out. The next day we woke up for breakfast that was toast and cereal, pretty boring I know. After breakfast we got ready for our next activity at 9:30. We then had another activity and after we had morning tea, next we had another activity and then we had lunch which was tacos and then we got ready to go to the beach. After we walked to the beach and we were there for around an hour. We walked back and went into the pool at 3:45. We were there for an hour and then we had free time until dinner and after dinner the Year 9’ s had activities planned for us like tug of war, glow stick hunting and hide and seek. It was then lights out at 10. In the morning after breakfast we cleaned our cabins and packed our bags and got our bags out by 9:30. We then did our last activity, had free time ate lunch which was meat pies or sausage rolls and after lunch we were on our way back to school.

Hi my name is Hayley and I ’ m here to tell you about what we did at camp, first the bus driver packed our suitcases in the under compartment, the bus ride took around 2 to 3 hours but the view on the way there was lovely! When we got there the nice workers there greeted us very kindly. We put our suitcases in this little room because we didn ’ t have our cabins yet. We all saw the pool and we were very excited but we had to have our lunch first, after we ate our lunch we all got a choice to get showed around the campsite or go in the pool, some of us had to go get changed to go in the pool but we had to wait until people were finished getting changed so we could get dressed. We all had fun in the pool but then it was time to get out, get changed and start our first activity. We finally got introduced into our cabins and we grabbed all of our stuff and went into our cabins, our year 7 cabins were really big. The first night the year 7 girls decided to put all our mattresses together for the first night but we were too loud. The night after we did the same thing because we got a second chance and this time we didn ’ t get in trouble. All I have to say is we all had a fun time and the beach was the best part of the whole camp. Hayley B
